Rotary birch veneer, also known as rotary cut spliced birch wood veneer or spliced rotary white birch veneer, is typically a pale cream to a pink tinged light yellow wood that ages to a deep pale gold color. It is available in 2′ x 8′ and 4′ x 8′ sizes as FlexVen™ 10 and FlexVen™ 20 paper backed, Tuf-Pli™ polyback or Pli-Flex™ wood on wood veneer sheets with a PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) option.
It is usually book matched with the grain running along the 8’ dimension. Rotary cut white birch wood veneer commonly allows for some defects such as occasional pin knots and mineral streaks. Birch is a hardwood of medium density, easy to work with and strong. It has a smooth texture, tight uniform grain and satiny sheen. Another common grain characteristic of spliced rotary cut birch veneer is an inconsistent ripple figure or flashing. Rotary spliced white birch wood veneer will accept stains and finishes well and is often stained with bold colors or to mimic other species.
